Having avery hard time choosing between CSA & CSS. Please help :)
I know this topic is a hot topic on the message boards, I have read alot of them already.
I'm having a hard time choosing between the two resorts for several reasons. One being that CSS is about $500 cheaper than CSA but I don't want to pass up quality to save a little bit if the other resort is worth the money. The reason i'm having such a hard time choosing it because of the beach. I live in the south & the Gulf of Mexico ( esp. Destin, Fl and surrounding areas ) have a pretty amazing beaches very similar to the Caribbean during times.
My reason for wanting to travel to the Caribbean is to experience a whole new beach, hopefully even more beautiful than the GOM. From what I have read, everyone raves about the CSA beach, and it looks amazing from pictures. However, it seems very crowded & very similar to GOM and I'm wanting more of a "Tropical & Secluded" feel for this vacation and something complety different from what I'm accustomed to. Atmosphere is important too. I want to be laid back and be able to totally relax but being in my mid 20's and my husband early 30's we do like to socialize but the night life is not a deal breaker. Basically, the deal breaker is the beach.
I think that CSS looks ideal because of the lush nature & looks so much more "deserted" than any beach I've been too , but my one concern is how small the beach is & the water clarity. Also, i'm interested in knowing if it is a man made beach or natural, I'm asking the b/c of the color of the sand.
This will be my first trip to the caribbean. I have searched high and low for the perfect Island & Resort to make my first visit too. All the Couple's resorts look amazing but I have very high expectations for my first trip :) I hope someone is able to give me a detailed response on which resort to choose and make my decision easier! Thank you again for your help.
